Description

This videos shows the Nov. 20, 2017, deployment of the Technology Educational Satellite, or TechEdSat-6, from the International Space Station.

The satellite was released into low-Earth orbit from the NanoRacks platform to begin a series of wireless sensor experiments which will be the first self-powered tests, expanding the capabilities of sensor networks for future ascent or re-entry systems. This is the fourth TechEdSat satellite carrying an updated version of the Exo-Brake that will demonstrate guided controlled reentry of small spacecraft to safely return science experiments from space.
